Great Second Life Destinations: Moonlight Charms Khaled




The landscape was covered with a thick fog when I arrived at Cambiamento Radikal's Khaled for a photographic visit. I was taken with the mystery of the destination. The arrival station looked vaguely foreboding - I was reminded of a set from the classic 1960's science fiction televsion series The Twilight Zone, episodes which can still be seen as reruns on YouTube.  As I walked around Khaled's Pines and looked across the moonlit lakes a strange and timeless sensation overcame me. My photographic eye found many of the scenes compelling, and strikingly beautiful. I highly recommend a visit to this unique destination.

To see my review of  Gaio, another gorgeous  region destined by Cambiamento Radikal reminiscent of Tuscany, Italy:

Photographic  Information:

All images  were taken with Windlight Sky Setting "TOR" Dusk Fairytale Glow which comes as a standard option under advanced environmental settings in Firestorm and other viewers. I like Fairytale Glow for its eerie early evening light and darkly clouded skies.




In addition, I applied a grain film image effect using Analog Efex Pro 2 from Google's Nik Collection. which is now available as a free download. You can find out more about this here:
